Around the Archaeology Blog-o-sphere Digest #2

Posted on September 13, 2014


Here is the second round of the Archaeology Blog-0-sphere round-up. Basically, I am highlighting some of the other archeo-blogs out there but instead of focusing on the whole blog I am going to be collecting all their posts from the last week . I realise not everyone uses an RSS reader and some people might be interested in occasional posts from a blog and not follow them constantly. I also figure there is no better way to determine if you like a blog than by reading some of their work.

I took these posts from my now updated list of archaeology blogs (400+ and counting). Though I have noticed a few blogs that should be in this list are missing. It is better than last week but I am still working out the issues. I am currently at EAA so have not had the time to really work out the kinks. That is also why this is a day late. If you know a great archaeology blog that I don’t have in that list please let me know and I will add them. Here are this weeks posts–
